ME-413 / 3 credits

Teacher(s): Boillat Eric, Brugger Jürgen, Moser Christophe

Language: English


Summary

The state of the art in the domain of additive production processes (the part is built by material addition without use of a shape tool) will be presented. The main application/benefits/shortcomings of the common additive processes as well as technological and economical issues will be discussed.

Content

Keywords

Production processes, prototyping methods, rapid production
methods, additive processes.

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

None

Recommended courses

Lecture on traditional procuction processes (like ME-212)

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Choose suitable methods and tools for (a) the development of, (b) the modelling and simulation of, (c) the analysis of and (d) the choice of solution for an engineering problem in the mechanical engineering domain (product design, manufacturing process and system production), CP1
  • Choose production tools and methods based on performance and cost requirements and needs, taking into consideration applicability limits and associated hypotheses, CP8
  • Formulate the physical principles of production processes features and limits of production processes, CP12

Teaching methods

Ex cathedra with examples and student presentation
